  1. Just replaced my cheap Ford 6000cd radio and dollar store speakers.......I installed a double din Kenwood DNX 7180 with Sirius sat radio and Garmin navigation, next I replaced the front 5 1/4 inch speakers with 5 1/4 inch 3 way pioneer, the back with 5 1/4 inch 2 way JBL's .....Wow what a difference in quality and sound. Bluetooth also works great with my I phone.

    orgin of nationality

    The same 2.0 was also built in Mexico for the North American Ford Focus. But are TC engines are built in Spain. Parts are interchangeable.

    Camper Conversion

    Hawaiian Transit Traveler. Wow, you came to Windsor? I live 30 km from Windsor. Glad you had a good time. Anyway, the 12 volt microwave works great for most any thing you would normally cook in a regular 1000 watt microwave, except it takes twice as long using 12 volt. For best results, run the engine when using your 12 volt microwave. Saves the battery. Best wishes from Canada.
  4. Just checked out the web site you posted. These mirrors will work with all North American Transit Connects. I live in Canada, and I see a lot of Canada post ( mail trucks) TC's with these mirrors. I looked at it close up, and they look great. Hope this helps.

    Camper Conversion

    I would recommend the 12v microwave oven, called the wavebox. I have one my self, and it works great.

    Backup / reverse problem

    Hello, never had this happen to my TC. But it happened to me once in my 2008 Ford Focus when it was new . I beleave it is the same engine and automatic transmission.Only happened once and never happened again. Must be a fluke thing. Hope this helps. Tranzy.
  8. I have seen them on the U.K. Web sites listed under Ford Tourneo Connect. Also try eBay UK and type in Ford Tourneo Connect. Once in a while they list some for sale. Good luck.
  9. What a bargain! 4 for the price of 1 wheel cover. I just priced one in Canada @ $ 77.00 each?

    Disable passenger airbag?

    Better to take it to the dealer, I am sure they will have to re-program the computer modular to accept the new codes, if you decide to deactivate them.

    Lug nuts have not changed on the 2012 TC.

    Accessory Delay does not work?

    After you turn off the key, the windows will not work, but if you push the radio button, the radio will turn on for 10 minutes. Same said if you turn the key to accessory, the windows will not work, and the radio will. If you turn the key on all the way, without starting the vehicle, you have full power to the windows and the radio.

    Accessory Delay does not work?

    I also have a 2012. The radio will stay on for 10 minutes, and the windows won't work, unless I turn the key. Hope this helps.

    Roof mounting points

    Just remove one of them, take it to your local hardware store to match it ( remember, they are metric).

    Radio and speaker replacement

    Yes, I beleave it will work with the steering wheel controls, says so in the manual. Took me 3 hours to install, you must purchase a radio mounting kit for your TC. I can also watch dvd's . You can even hook up a rear or front view camera with this unit, my TC already has the back up camera. The sat radio antenna, I routed up the left side of the dash, up inside the black moulding to the top of the head liner to the back , out of the back door, up on the roof....best part is all the wiring is hidden.

    Rear License Plate Screw / Bolt Size???

    Yes, they are 5 mm screws, I bought extra just in case mine fell off....lol.
  20. I agree, I noticed a lot of small stone/gravel pebbles cought in the treads of the tires. Always picking them out with my house key? If I save them all, I wonder how many pounds i would in a year??? Lol.

    Exhaust system

    Has any one experienced premature rust issues with their TC's exhaust? Iv'e had my 2012 TC since late December 2011, and we hadn't had much of a snowy winter this year.Not much salt on the roads.On a few ocasions, I would find under my TC, big pieces of rust that has fallen off the exhaust pipe. Some of the pieces were over 3 inchs long X 2 inches. I thought that was a little excessive. I will mention this to the dealer.

    Push Bar

    It would be nice if they made a stainless steel version.

    Removing rear speakers in 2011 XLT wagon

    I replaced mine with 5 1/4 inch JBL, and what a difference with the stock radio. Now I'm going to replace the door speakers.
